i was standing on top of a hill. i could see a green valley below me with rolling moundss continuing to the horizon. above me was a high voltage pylon towering over me like a giant. here it looked so massive it could put skyscrapers to shame. a million cables were drawn from it, connecting it to the other pylons. like tightropes continuing into infinity.
forever before me, and forever behind.
i listened to the beastly hum of the electric current. this was the only noise from the megacity far behind me that i could still hear, even in here in the countryside. a warm summer's evening, almost tropical in temperature. it was that time of year when through the whole night it would look like an endless sunset. a fiery red glow in the distance. we were barely reaching the twilight zone.
the pylons were rusty.
almost like dead trees still standing, they stood silently without even making a creak in the wind.
like giant skeletons from the past.
still standing like they always had, sustaining life in the city while being lifeless themselves.
abandoned.
forgotten.
still standing here.
like a loyal dog waiting for its owner. even though they might never return.
still waiting,
until forever.
how the copper and steel has oxidized so shall i one day decay.
for the brief moment i am alive, i wait.
i am in no hurry.
i wait,
just to see where life takes me
